Behind the Blend
Our original espresso derives its name from the street where our first ever coffee shop is located - meet Hope Street Espresso.
When enjoying a cup of Hope Street Espresso coffee, you can expect a cup full of dark berries and salted caramel notes, underpinned by a rich dark chocolate foundation. Bright and lively on its own, moreish with milk.
Hope Street Espresso is our oldest signature blend. Since day one, it has provided the espresso base for all of our drinks and has been widely accepted by customers near and far as a staple blend for both espresso and filter-based drinks.
The blend itself is created to match a set flavour profile that we have chosen for Hope Street Espresso. The ingredients that go into it change as crops of coffee come and go, but for consistency we are always aiming for a well-balanced coffee with strong notes of chocolate that come through larger milk-based drinks, and a delicate brightness and sweetness to finish. The coffee is pre-blended and roasted slightly darker than any of our other caffeinated coffees to enforce the balance of sweetness, acidity and bitterness that is required for an espresso.

At 92 Degrees, the coffee roastery is the heart of the company. Here’s what goes on behind the scenes. First, the green coffee beans are carefully selected from farms all over the world, with a focus on sustainability and ethical sourcing. The beans are then roasted in small batches using state-of-the-art roasting machines, which ensures consistency and quality in every batch. The roasting process is an art and science, and the master roasters at 92 Degrees have years of experience in perfecting their craft.
Once the coffee beans are roasted, they are cooled down and packaged into bags for distribution. The packaging process is also done with care, as the bags are designed to preserve the freshness and flavor of the coffee for as long as possible. The bags are then labeled with the origin, roast date, and other important information, so customers can learn more about the coffee they are enjoying.
Finally, the coffee is shipped out to 92 Degrees cafes and retail partners, where it is served to customers or sold on shelves. The coffee roastery is a busy and exciting place, with a team of passionate coffee lovers working hard to bring the best possible coffee to customers. Whether you enjoy a rich, dark roast or a light and fruity blend, 92 Degrees has something for everyone, thanks to the careful attention to detail that goes into every step of the roasting process.
